Had a simmilar problem with my volvo 850 an engineer ? RAC told me my valves had bent as it was turning over but had no compression ?. I spent £400 having the head done replaced it and after 6 moths same again. Came out one morning not starting turning over but dead not a glimmer .
Then an old guy who was passing said try changing your oil grade ? and squirta a litlle into your cylinders .
I thought well anything is worth a try so I did an oil change and sqiurted some into each cylinder left it ten minutes like he said .
Came back out and with fingers crossed turned the key and she burst into life on the first tunn , seems it's a common fault with the 850 the oil thins drains out of the head and it looses compression , what I want to know where was that old guy the first time around he could have saved me £400 ....Vortash

SOURCE: my 1996 850 volvo wont start the engine turns

ok, turning over and cranking are the same thing, what your saying is it won't fire, so , 2 things make a motor fire, electric and fuel, so starting with the easiest remedy , remove the distributor cap, and inspect the rotor and connection points that are inside the cap, check for any debris built up , sometimes you can clean them good enough to get the car to fire up, if it does , normally you would replace them , ( not that expensive) remove the number one cylinder spark plug, and once out put the spark plug wire back on it, ( your going to need help with this step) with insulated pliers , hold the plug and place the bottom of the plug against a grounding point (any bolt on the motor will do,, but try and keep it away from the carb as its Hopefully going to spark) have someone try and turn the car over as if to start it, look for spark at the end of the plug, if you have spark,, replace the plug and try and start the car , if it won't,, move onto the fuel problem, you need to make sure that the car is getting fuel, remove the fuel line to the carb turn the key for a second, you should see fuel splashing out, if yes ,, you should be able to start the car , if no,, check the fuel filter first , then the fuel pump,

go to your local volvo dealership, and you must have the car in your name, but ask one of the mechanics if you can have the code for your radio, they'll look it up and give it to you I believe.

I have a 1994 volvo 850 t5 and the air conditioner will not blow. what do I need to do, to fix this problem myself?


Start by checking the fuses at the block underthe hood, rught side by the wiper

If you do not have a blower fan on any setting it could be the blower fan itself or the the head control unit in the dash.

hope this helps
